Podcast: Brian Cashman

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

I’m very excited to announce that my podcast is now on iTunes!

To listen to or download the first episode, the Brian Cashman Podcast, recorded at our offices on 12.14.12, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

Aside from being a very successful GM, as you’ll see from the podcast, Brian is a very intelligent, humble, and personable man. He answers everything directly and honestly; he doesn’t blow any smoke at you. It was an honor and a pleasure to be able to sit down and talk with him for 30+ minutes.

In case you can’t listen right away, here’s a little preview - three of the questions I asked him:

Steiner: It’s December. Is the free agent activity chill now? Pretty clear? Or is this the hardest time, trying to fill the holes?

Cashman: It’s pretty non-stop. It’s always a slow-motion process in the beginning. I know once free agency starts, fans’ expectations around the country for various teams are that everything will be solved quick; you’ll jump right in. But it doesn’t work that way. If you’re gonna do a business deal and it happened fast, one of the two sides got burned. Patience is a really important part of the process…A lot of our best moves in the past number of years have come in January.

Steiner: So there could be an interesting 30 days ahead.

Cashman: You can’t predict, but I’d use as an example - when you pull the Chavezes off the board, and the Raúl Ibáñezes, and the Bartolo Colóns, and Freddy Garcias - guys that are lesser names but that over the past three or four seasons have had pretty good impacts.

Steiner: Where did your (penchant for staying out of the limelight) come from?

Cashman: I got it from George Steinbrenner. He didn’t like any of his people coming out of the woodwork - this is his baby. Also, when you’re in a large media market, there’s a quote I believe (applies) - “The higher on the tree the monkey climbs, the more you see his ass.” So that’s why, when you run for politics, all of a sudden people start tearing you down. If I want that type of publicity, then I’d probably put myself out there and pound my chest. But that comes with a price. I can do my job and stay under the radar. The focus should be the players on the field.

Steiner: Tell me one thing that may surprise us in 2013. Something to keep an eye on.

  • Hello everyone, I am from Wembley, Britain. I want to write this testimony to tell others and thank Dr. Odunga for what he has done for me. The first 12 years of my marriage I had 5 miscarriages and I was called all sorts of names by my mother-in-law and this made my marriage life very hectic and a burden of sorrow. I contacted Dr. Odunga for help and I will say that he is a very strong and honest man and he indeed helped me solve my problem. I saw his email in a testimony and I contacted him, little did I know it would be the end of all my problems. After 2 days of contact, I received a fertility herb and he told me to use it. The herb worked and my husband even loved me more and bought me expensive things. One afternoon, I went to a nearby hospital and came back home with the positive result of my pregnancy and after 9 months I gave birth to a baby boy. Ever since I contacted Dr. Odunga, my story has been different. I have 3 children at present and I am very happy in my marriage. Please, contact him at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR Whats App him +2348167159012 to help you too
